Gophers nab athletic QB McKinzy

Dimonic McKinzy (Kansas City, Kan./Wyandotte), a high school quarterback considered an athlete prospect by ESPN, has committed to sign with Minnesota, according to multiple reports.

He selected the Golden Gophers over scholarship offers from Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska. Illinois, Iowa State, Kansas State, Missouri, Northern Illinois, Northwestern, Tulsa and UCLA also recruited the 6-foot, 215-pound prospect.

ESPN describes McKinzy as "a man without a home until he hits the next level and settles in at one position. He shows flashes on defense, but gets by on talent, not technique or polish. Measurables are very good. Shows some toughness and instincts as an overall player to develop."

McKinzy, who will be included in ESPN's next rankings update, is commitment No. 2 for the Gophers during this recruiting cycle.
